Government Operations committee  That is definitely a problem. Not only is it a human resources capacity, but it's a capacity to do what has been now downloaded to that particular manager. They just don't have the capacity to be able to do hiring processes in a fair and equitable manner. It comes down to, basica

Government Operations committee  As I've said, you can see in the Public Service Commission's annual reports on staffing that this number, unfortunately, incrementally increases every year. What does that do? That puts somebody into a precarious job. They can't really plan, because they have a job for eight mo

Government Operations committee  I spoke about favouritism, and it's the old-fashioned favouritism, as both of us said in our remarks. It comes down to who you know.

What's wrong with go

Government Operations committee  Unfortunately, if you look at Public Service Commission annual reports, and this is very easily seen over the last several years, the majority of new hires are precarious workers. They're terms. They're casuals. Therefore, once they're in, then, as we talked about, it becomes who

Government Operations committee  It comes down to the human resources capacity within the individual departments and agencies. They simply don't have the resources to do the processes in a timely manner. I was at Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt out in Victoria just a few weeks ago. I was told by the admiral, th

Representing over 120,000 federal public service workers, our main focus is on internal staffing processes. In 2003, the Public Service Modernization Act, or PSMA, made changes to the Public

Procedure and House Affairs committee  No. It landed safely in Ottawa as a result of a request to land the plane. As to exactly what that cost us, I don't know just off the top of my head. It was in the air for a short period of time.
